I now own four Musician's Gear cases, two dreadnaught, one electric, and now this classical case, which I actually use for a resonator guitar. They're sturdy cases, and good deals for the price. One of my dreadnaught cases is the tweed, and it's a real beauty. The black ones look like any black hardshell case. They do have a chemical odor when they first arrive, though this quickly goes away, and they do require some attention to line up for closing, especially when you first get them, but they still do the job just fine. This one arrived with some cosmetic damage--a gouge that exposed some wood on the lid--see photo--but Musician's Friend's customer service department proved friendly, helpful, and quick and took care of it to my satisfaction.

I was really impressed with the appearance, weight and especially the nice comfortable handle. I bought the tweed version. However, you had to wiggle the lid to shut the case as it was poorly aligned, and the case has a 4 1/2" interior depth at the edge, the specs say 5 1/2". I guess they're measuring from the arched center. I have 2 classicals and both are 5" deep on the edge, 5 1/2" w/bridge saddle height considered. I had to put undue pressure on the case to close it. Also, the fabric covering the top was cut too small so there was frayed tweed on the edge of the lid where it didn't meet the covering of the side taping/binding. I also have the tweed strat case and it is tops. These are great cases, but it was too small for a standard size classical. i really wish it had worked.

    Gearbox hinge is just loose liner-cloth. for the increased price should be much better. Black tolex is better quality in my experience.

      Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Classical Guitar Case:

      A special thank you to Musician's Friend for including detailed interior dimensions for this case. Very few online music stores have figured out that those dimensions are critical, but MF is a big step ahead on that one. Check Music123, Sweetwater, Austin, even Elderly, and see how frustrating it can be to try yo match a case with an instrument with any confidence that things will fit in the end. In addition to its sturdiness, nice hardware, super lush interior and handsome exterior finish, this case is a perfect fit for my 60's vintage "O" body four string tenor guitar. Never thought I'd find one again. Couldn't be happier.

            I bought the case to replace an old chipboard case from 1968 Gibson C1 Classic. It fits perfectly and is more protection than chipboard.

              Overall, I am very happy with this case. Attractive case with plush interior that is very sturdy. The only negative is the lock which does not work. However, the case itself is a very good value.

                I have a 1939 00045 Martin guitar that needed a replacement case. This is a good case, but I'm worried that the cover is pressing down on the face of the guitar, so I don't fasten the locking latch. Other than that, it's great for storage at home. Looks great and made well.

                I needed a case for a Recording King Parlour guitar - this is an almost perfect fit. On a flight I was obliged to check the case as cargo and it protected the guitar well.

                Comments about Musician's Gear Deluxe Classical Guitar Case:

                It's not overly easy to find cases to fit a flamenco that aren't $700+. I wanted a visenut case, but didn't have the scratch for that at the moment. I spent the money on a nice small luthier Flamenco guitar. I got this case because the dimension were about spot-on. When the case came(in a very timely fashion as orders tend to from M.F.) I immediately placed my flamenco guitar in the case. It fits like a glove, much like Taylor guitars in their factory hard cases. PROS - tweed is fun, the fit of the guitar in the case (it is NOT moving!), price point for this case. CONS - the latches on this case kind of scare me. When the latches are open, they are quite rattly, loose and cheap sounding. When the case is latched, they are not rattly but . . . not like I feel overly secure. The rivets for the handle - one side of handle is nice and snug, the other one nearly feels like it'll rattle loose in a year. I wouldn't use this for anything more than storing my good guitar at home. I would take my beater guitar to a lesson.

                I considered Gator, SKB and Humicase. Gator would likely be my next option. SKB reviews are really mixed. I have an older Humicase for a Cordoba Solista I like, but seems like some of new Humicases people are saying rivets holding latches and hinges aren't solid.

                My guitar truly is irreplaceable so I will be saving up some money to get a professional level case. For now - my flamenco will just sit comfortably at home in this case.

                Honestly - for 85% of the people looking - this case will do the job.
